Largo, Florida - Largo Police are looking for a little girl who pulled a knife on a Wal-Mart clerk as she tried to steal two boxes of Lego toy blocks.

It happened on the Missouri Avenue around 9:00 pm Tuesday night.

Police say the 7 to 8-year-old girl hid the toys under her coat and tried to walk out the door.

A store employee was watching and approached the child, asking her to turn over the Lego blocks.

Police say the little girl then opened her jacket and displayed a combo carving knife with a forked point and a 10" blade, saying she was armed for protection.

The employee talked the girl into putting down the knife and the toys.

The girl then rode away on her bicycle.

The employee was not hurt.

I love LEGOs !!!

Could it be she was put up to doing this by someone older? Not an adult necessasarily but perhaps an older kid, like a teenager using a 7 or 8 yr. old to do their dirty work.

I would say that it is quite a safe way to use a bicycle as a getaway vehicle for minors... =)

To steal Legos? And what? Fence them to Kindergarteners? Trade them for Pokomon cards which are then exchanged for pot?

Guess who's name appeared to anyone who refreshed after you posted?

Edit: and guess which rocket scientist just put his own name back in.
